If anyone’s wondering where I’ve gotten to…

You might have noticed that I haven’t been around your blogs or replying to blog comments (or maybe not). The reason is that I’m in South Africa, where my family lives. As I mentioned in this week’s Throwback Thursday post, it’s my brother, Pete’s 30th birthday today. His lovely girlfriend, Nikki, has been planning a bit of a surprise party for him and since I adore both my brother and a good surprise,  Mr Osbiston and I flew out on Tuesday and will be here until the 28th.

In order avoid ridiculous roaming charges the phone will mostly be off but I wouldn’t want to completely rob you lovely people of my ramblings I have prescheduled some posts.

This is my most beloved picture of me and Pete from when he lived in London. Welcome to your 30s, Kleinboet!

      He was absolutely shell shocked the first time he saw us. I think it took him a couple of hours before it sunk in.
